When a desired resource is not available in one of our research databases, or in Monarch Catalog our online catalog, consider requesting the item through inter-library loan. Library staff will request the item(s) from libraries outside of our library system.
Our inter-library loan service is available to all individuals currently attending or working at Lakeland College. Many electronic article requests can be fulfilled within one or two business days; although some books and difficult items may take up to 2 weeks to fill. Occasionally items are unavailable. You will be notified if your request cannot be filled. If you'd like to check on the status of your item, you can email Jamie Kellner at
Before requesting an article, try our new research tool, Full Text Finder. Enter the title of the magazine, journal or newspaper to see if that title is available in full-text (complete articles) in any of Lakeland's databases.
Also, remember that if you need a book immediately you can try our extensive eBook collection.
